Originally dropped as BattleCat, Ubisoft has officially announced XDefiant Tom Clancy, a free competitive first person shooter to play in a team. It involves fighting between four factions (known as Defiants) from across the Tom Clancy games series – the Outcasts and Cleaners from The Division series; the Wolves from Ghost Recon breakthrough; and Echelon, based on Third Echelon of Cell Splinter. Check out the disclosure below.
Characters fall into one of these four factions, and they have their unique abilities and Supers (here called “Ultras”). Cleaners can use flame lights, Echelon has night view goggles and so on. Additional characters will be added to the title over time. A multitude of weapons with different attachments are also available and each weapon can be equipped with all weapons. You can even change your load when reshaping.
XDefiant Tom Clancy under development for Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, Google Stadia and PC. Early roll-outs are planned with the first closed test taking place on August 5th (sign up for the same here). Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
